ʿARŪŻĪ, YŪSOF, rhetorician and poet of the 4th/10th century, samples of whose poetry are preserved in the Loḡat-e fors and the Moʿǰam. Rādūyānī mentions a work on ʿarūż (metrics) composed in Persian by a certain Abū Yūsof who is most likely to be identical with Yūsof ʿArūżī. Nothing else is known about him.
